I'm so happy to have this quilt finished! My wonderful hubby encouraged me to purchase the kit 10 years ago! I was intimidated by the 2000+ little squares and the strata style of assembly. I used 100% cotton batting and a very small meander (stipple). After it was complete, I machine washed and dried it to give it the antique look. I love it!!! My husband says I have to keep this one. I think I will. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
